Having spent most of my life avoiding SWA because of not having assigned seats and the "cattle call" mentality, I finally started flying SWA last March. I have now changed my opinion and really prefer NOT having assigned seats. For those of us who make last minute reservations, we would end up with middle seats most of the time. I know now that if I book a flight for tomorrow, that I will have a very good chance of getting either an aisle or a window seat because of on-line check in. I have learned to "play" the game, and I really like the game. I am especially amazed at receiving a companion pass for my wife just 14 months after switching to SWA for my flight needs. What a great program!!!! In closing,
DO NOT CHANGE TO ASSIGNED SEATS!!!!!
